A new $6.7 million ambulatory unit has opened in Shellharbour Hospital

Health Minister Jillian Skinner and Parliamentary Secretary for the Illawarra and South Coast Gareth Ward officially opened the new unit which was completed in May 2015.

Mrs Skinner said the $6.7 million project provides the community with better access to a range of services to meet the needs of the southern Illawarra population.

“The new unit offers enhanced health services to Illawarra patients, including antenatal, diabetes and respiratory clinics, as well as pulmonary rehabilitation and podiatry services,” Ms Skinner said.

Mr Ward said the facility would care for the Shellharbour community for decades.

“The delivery of this vital service strengthens our $251 million commitment to the major redevelopment of Shellharbour Hospital", Mr Ward said.
